‘Biggest Coward In Baseball’: Yankees Fans Rip Pitcher Who Avoided Judge’s 61st Home Run


New York Yankees fans blistered Pittsuburg Pirates’ pitcher Eric Stout for avoiding the possibility of giving up a record-tying home run to Yankees’ slugger Aaron Judge after Stout threw four straight pitches out of the strike zone, walking Judge on four pitches.

It was clear that Judge’s at-bat against Stout would be his last of the game, as it came in the eighth inning with the Yankees leading 11-2. There would be no reason to try to pitch around Judge as the game was not even close to being on the line; Judge has 60 home runs, and his 61st would tie the American League record held by the Yankees’ Roger Maris.

Eric Stout wanted zero part of history.
